So far I've put up dilly beans, kidney beans and today is turkey stock. When I'm done today I will have canned 24 quarts. I still have 3 turkey carcasses to make more stock from.

Sorry you have been sick, Michelle, colds can make you feel miserable.

Soups are always good to have on hand. I've been making a lot of egg noodle soup with one pint of my chicken or beef broth and egg noodles. Makes enough for two servings.

Hope all your jars seal Sara, And enjoy your beans. We finished up the syrup season, and no other canning going on. I should get some soups going, as I am out of those for quick meals. Or as I have been sick lately, sick meals. Darn cold has gotten me.

I'm not canning but I am awaiting my heirloom bean order that will be do in the coming days, it's coming by USPS so who knows when it will get here. Some of my favorite beans are back in stock, eye of the goat, Jaccob's cattle, and baby green Limas. When I am ready to can, I think I will start with the eye of the goat beans, they have been out of stock for over a year.

Canned 7 pints dried pinto beans today and they all sealed. I had a case of 12 oz Ball wide mouth jars with lids & rings that had not been opened so I used the lids and rings for today's canning with Ball jars.

Way to go Krista! You'll have a full pantry this fall with all the goodies you're going to can!

That's what I thought Sara. I just wanted to check with you all and see.
Judith I was always told by my mom that anything with meat was low acid and should be done in a pressure canner.
Thanks ladies.

I was always told no meat or meat products in a water bath. Also most veggies. Fruits and tomatoes in a water bath and now with all the low acid tomatoes you have to add lemon juice or vinegar.

Denise, everything I have read about canning chicken broth is it is done in a pressure canner.

I have seen recipes for bone broth with vinegar done in a water bath canner. The vinegar changes the ph from low to high.

I have a question ladies. Is it safe to do chicken broth in a water bath canner or should that be done in pressure cooker? In a group I'm in someone said they did it in a water bath. I thought low acid is supposed to be pressure canned.

Thanks. I was given a pressure canner for Christmas and I am super excited to see what else I am able to can this year.

Krista, great job on putting up all that chicken. Will be great to have on hand for quick and not so quick meals.

Michelle, I'm feeling better today - it comes and goes. I know cooking syrup has to be hard but so rewarding. Enjoy your hard work.

Hope you feeling stronger Sara. Four jars not sealing is tough, but at least you got soup. Krista, way to go on canning chicken. We love canned chicken, so easy to use in so many ways. Cooked syrup again yesterday. Got 12 quarts and 1 pint. The season will end soon, as the trees are starting to bud. Going to turn cold again, so will see what happens.

Over the weekend my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and I canned 120 pounds of chicken. So we ended up with 40 pounds each. It was my first time canning chicken and I really learned a lot. I definitely underestimated how time consuming it is, but it's worth it. This canned chicken is way tastier for chicken salad sandwiches.

Sara -- Were you using a new box of lids? Sometimes it is possible to run into a bad batch that doesn't want to seal.

You want to hear my sad canning story, well here it goes. Yesterday I canned 7 pints of Chiapas black beans from the State of Chiapas in Mexico. Four jars did not seal so I will make black bean soup out of 3 of the pints and black bean salsa out of the 4th.

The only thing that makes sense to me is while I was filling the jars I noticed my right hand had become weak, so I figure I just didn't tighten the four unsealed jars enough. Things like that happen to me all the time, one minute my hands are strong and the next they are weak. Never know when some part of my body stops working.

Great timing Michele! And your meal sounds delicious. We pulled our 3 taps yesterday. The little bit of sap that came out was cloudy and it's not supposed to be below freezing again anytime soon. Thanks for the info. Depending on the weather it sounds like 15-20 taps might work well for me. I will need an upgrade on the boiling equipment though LOL! I just used a roasting pan and a turkey fryer. A wood fire and a big pan would be much better!

Thanks for sharing.

14 quarts and 1 pint of syrup canned and sealed. We cook outside in dutch ovens, over the wood coal. Yesterday we made biscuits and gravy casserole, Indian fry bread, and a peach crumble. The other staple when cooking sap is beer. We did get done outside about 10 minutes before a thunderstorm moved through.

Thank you Michele -- I knew about cooking the sap but I didn't know about using reverse osmosis for the process. It sounds like it saves time and energy.

Judith, an RO is Reverse Osmosis. A system of 4 filters that separates out the water and the sap. When making syrup you are boiling off the water, until you have a nice syrup.

Michele -- I find the process very interesting but I have one question: What is RO?
